Christmas Lights

On Sunday afternoon last in pleasant, mild conditions Santa arrived in the town’s Fire Brigade to switch on the town’s new modern Christmas Lights. There was a huge crowd present and they were entertained before the switch on, by the Bailieborough School of Music Orchestra, the Community Choir, Hard Times Chorus and an amalgamated choir from St. Anne’s N.S, The Model N.S. and St. Felim’s, The Vale N.S. John Ed Sheanon was compere for the afternoon and he kept things running smoothly. A seasonal highlight was a rendering by Bert Coote of a poem for the occasion written specially for it, by well-known veteran poet Kevin Connell. Santa took a well-deserved time-out and after the traditional count down, he turned on the new 2014 Christmas Lights, to a rapturous round of applause. Well done to the Bailieborough Business Association for organising a great event, for providing the new Christmas Lights and special thanks goes to all who helped out on the day.

Vigil Mass time change in the New Year

Under 12; The replay of the U12 League Shield Final v St. Felim’s proved to be equally as exciting as the first encounter. Again the sides could not be separated after the hour, so extra time was played and two quick fire goals were enough for St. Felim’s to prevail on the night.

The number 1 Adventure Racer in Ireland, Dessie Duffy was first home by almost 5 minutes, making it five wins on the trot but he was pushed all the way by his team mates Killian Heary, Mike Reilly and Kieran Cosgrove who finished in third, fifth and sixth places. Tony Gregory was next in for the Kayakarunners with a brilliant time of 3hrs 30mins. John Joe Reilly, Ronan O Grady, Daragh Nulty and Bernice Lambe all ran very strong races finishing well under four hours and completing an unbelievable year for the Cavan Kayakarun crew.

TAI CHI Classes

Anyone between the ages of 11 to 25 interested in taking Tai Chi classes should attend the Beckscourt Resource centre next Thursday, 30th of October, at 6pm.

Developed originally in China as a self defense strategy, or martial art,   tai chi—the “supreme ultimate fist”- is practiced in modern times, primarily as a gentle exercise technique. Described as “meditation in motion,” Tai Chi consists of a standing person performing a series of postures or bodily movements in a slow and graceful manner, with each movement flowing without pause to the next. According to Chinese legend, the technique was createdby a Taoist monk who was inspired as he watched a crane and a snake do battle. Impressedby the ‘snake’s ability to subtly and  swiftly avoid  the bird’s thrusts, he devised a series of self-defence techniques  that do not  involve meeting the opponent’s force with force, but rather stress  evading the blow; causing the opponent’s own momentum to work against  him.

Leisure Centre News: Mrs Sheila Germaine

Many in the local community were saddened to hear of the death of Mrs Sheila Germaine last Thursday, especially her dear sister, Mrs Eileen Lynch of Chapel Road. Sheila visited her home on the Shercock Road frequently where she regularly entertained relations and her many friends. She also generously and discreetly supported many individuals and projects in the region. Her offer to support a Swimming Pool for Bailieborough, kick started the local Leisure Centre which she continued to support over the years. Sheila will be buried beside her husband Lawrence following Funeral Mass in St. Gregory’s Church, New York on Wednesday 15th and there will be a mass in St Anne’s Church, Bailieborough at 7pm on that evening to celebrate her life and pray for her immortal soul.

As a mark of respect on her passing, the Leisure Centre will be closed on Wednesday from 2-3pm.

A Book of condolences at the Leisure Centre for those who wish to show their respect. May she rest in peace.

  

 ‘Gala Evening’ in the Bailie Hotel

Bailieborough Businesses Association are holding a ‘Black Tie Gala Evening’ in the Hotel Bailie on this Friday evening, October 17th. Some of the reasons for holding the event include—the Christmas lighting system now in place is out of date and need’s complete renewal. It is hoped that the proceeds of the event will be large enough to make a significant contribution to alleviating the cost of €20,000 for this project, which is one of a number of initiatives planned and vitally necessary to restore the Town Centre to its former vitality, and inject a spirit of confidence and hope in our people to achieve success, in the mammoth task that lies ahead of us.

The event—the Association hopes, will bring together business people of all sectors to share their knowledge and experience and as a result forge friendship and ties which could later on result in new business’s being created. There are always opportunities to be grasped and shared knowledge is one way of identifying these opportunities.

As the night itself, it promises to be a very exciting event so why not indulge yourself in a little luxurious relaxation. The organising committee has gone to great lengths to ensure that this night out, will be special and with Sean Gallagher on hand, who knows you could go home with an idea worth a million.

There are still a few tickets left for the event—which are priced at €65 and are on sale in the Bailie Hotel, Supervalu and Bailie Stores.

Jean Smith – 1956- 2011: An exhibition of the paintings of Jean Smith 1956 – 2011 in the Wesleyan Chapel, Bailieborough **** 17th-19th October 2014.

Opening night on Friday with a reception of wine and cheese.
There will be an Auction of one of Jeans beautiful painting and ALL Proceeds on the night will be donated to Local Cancer Societies.

Jean Smith (nee Sheridan) grew up in Bailieborough and later moved to Lough-an-Leagh, Kingscourt, Co. Cavan.She was a self-taught artist and also attended courses to meet other artists and increase her knowledge.

She was creatively talented from a very early age and worked in Halls Drapery store at weekends where she grew a love for fashion.  As she continued to develop creatively, Jean later became an outstanding dressmaker and curtain maker.  She made her own, beautiful wedding dress that is still in storage and will be treasured by her family forever.  Mother Gabrielle was Jeans Art teacher in School was a huge inspiration and gave her the confidence to pursue what she loved doing.

Her love of painting grew when Jean moved to the country-side of Lough-an-Leagh where she painted local landmarks.  It’s here that she was inspired by the spectacular landscapes and she produced some of the beautiful works of art on display.
Autumn was Jean’s favourite time of the year and she was inspired by the rich bronze colours of the trees and red skies at night.  She also had a strong love of the Irish landscape with its constantly changing light and atmosphere.  Her primary source of media was oils but she also liked working with watercolours and sketching.

Jean always had something creative on the go.  From knitting to sewing or sketching away in her sketchbook.  Her family say’s“It was always such a warm, loving home.  Mum was always painting, sewing or doing something creative, amidst the hustle and bustle of family life.”

Jean’s love for all things creative has had a major impact on her children and she was a huge inspiration to her daughter Niamh who followed in her footsteps and went to Art College to become a Printed Textile Designer.  Her eldest son Niall also inherited her creative gene and is now a successful architect in the families’ home town of Kingscourt.

Jean also worked with the elderly in helping them to find a way of passing precious time.  She loved to help others and everyone around her shone when in her presence.
Exhibition on October 19th in Bailieborough Arts and Cultural Centre.

This exhibition is in memory of Jean who encouraged and inspired her family and friends to pursue their own passion for art.  Her husband Philip, Sons Niall, Philip, Sean, Colm and Daughter Niamh are very proud to host such a strong body of work and feel that they owe this special occasion to Jean who is sorely missed.

Jean will be remembered with great love and affection by all who knew her.

There are always opportunities to be grasped and shared knowledge is one way of identifying these opportunities.

As the night itself, it promises to be a very exciting event so why not indulge yourself in a little luxurious relaxation. The organising committee has gone to great lengths to ensure that this night out, will be special and with Sean Gallagher on hand, who knows you could go home with an idea worth a million.

Tickets for the event are priced at €65 and can be purchased individually or by tables of 8 or 10. Tickets will be sold on a first come basis and are on sale in the Bailie Hotel, Supervalu and Bailie Stores.
